I am a physician (pediatrics and medical genetics), entrepreneur (co-founder of Herbal Water Inc.), artist, innovative cook and mother of three. I believe that eating healthy and enjoying good food go hand in hand, and that eating well is an important building block of maintaining and promoting health and well-being. My main interests are science, nutrition, food and travel. 

my Mission

Superfoods, gluten-free, antioxidants, chia seeds and probiotics: are they really health-promoting miracles? 

And how about aspartame, cholesterol and MSG, are they as bad people say?

Walking through the supermarket is confusing, and reading the latest headlines even more so. I try to look at what we know, weigh the evidence, and see if new trends and health news are merely interesting or really something we should act upon.

Above all, I try to balance nutrition and health with a moderation, simplicity and practicality.

Join me for the ride!
